I was not successful in refraining from calling it Bow Wow :)
We were looking for a quick inexpensive lunch before the theatre on a Sunday and this was open. It is in the Renaissance Hotel. The address is Wacker, but you enter the restaurant on Lake St. It is part of Richard Melman's "Lettuce Entertain You" empire. The concept is simple -- bowls of noodles or rice with toppings for $5.99. For $2.50 more you can ad two Bao Buns or 3 potstickers. The food is tasty, but over salty and, if it concerns you, spicy. We love spice. The music was too loud and the ambiance very very "fast food." It wasn't bad, but if we went there again we'd try the bao buns instead.
You can order online for pickup or bicycle delivery. There are 5 locations in Chicago.
